Laser engraving an egg

Too bad Glowforge didn’t allow for rotary stuff. Maybe in Glowforge 2.0.

Lack of rotary support is my only disappointment with my GF.

Did anyone else try that one successful rotary implementation?

I was going to, but I thing you need to have a Pro for the passthru to cut it. The plans are too big for my machine to cut.

Are you sure there isn’t a scaling hiccup? When he so generously posted the plans he said it takes one sheet of draftboard.

That is entirely possible. If anyone else has tried I would love to know. I had/have every intention of looking into it deeper, but life keeps getting in the way. We have had several litters of puppies since I downloaded it.

I believe that it was @Jules that was using her Glowforge on an egg. If it is under 2" in diameter you could engrave it at one part at a time. :egg: :egg: :egg: :egg: :egg: :egg: :egg: :egg: :egg: :fried_egg:

I am trying the rotary thing right now and struggling with the sizing too. I cannot get it to fit on one sheet and still be long enough to fit. Has anyone else tried or figured it out?

@garyritchie47 did you notice that the designer of the rotary jig updated his post with new plans?
